What People Are Saying
“This meditation on biodiversity makes its point with grace."
“Absolutely lovely. I love the way it gently demonstrates the importance of diversity in ecosystems (and communities) with wonderful bright illustrations of a flourishing and not-so-flourishing garden. I especially love the incidental inclusion of hearing aids on Ana, our gardener!"
CAROLINE FIELDING, LIBRARIAN
“The Wall and the Wild is a wonderful picture book to help children learn about ecology and biodiversity and how through rewilding we can bring nature back to our gardens. Beautifully illustrated by Katie Rewse in bright, bold colours."
BAPIPUR BOOK CLUB
“In an increasingly stressful world, we follow Ana try to take control by creating a perfect garden only to realize she can only achieve this by accepting the imperfect! This thoughtful tale of embracing biodiversity leaves plenty of room to open up insightful conversations with children into environmental stewardship and the many benefits of rewilding our gardens!"
ASHLEY NWOKORIE, ALLOTMENT CAFE
“The Wall and the Wild would be a stunning addition to any topic on ecosystems and sustainability - as well as the value of embracing diversity and difference - and could be explored in depth with any primary age range."
